Sir Christopher specialises in the economics of labour markets, macroeconomic policy, economic growth and structural change.

He has written extensively in professional journals, magazines and the press and his book Equilibrium Unemployment Theory is an influential reference in the economics of unemployment that has been translated in many languages. He is frequently quoted in the press on issues concerning the Eurozone and the future of European integration.
